Obama’s Taking It to the Streets. The Coming Explosion in Murder and Other Violent Crime.

Free Republic

Obama has declared a ceaseless war on the citizens of the United States. Obama is facilitating, cheerleading, and dispersing tides of illegals–from the most violent, crime-ridden countries in the world–into American towns and cities from sea to sea.

These are excerpts from official reports of the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) of the U.S. Department of State:

El Salvador 2013 Crime and Safety Report

El Salvador (population 6.3 million) is rated “Critical” for crime by the U.S. Department of State. \

El Salvador is considered one of the most violent countries in the world.

The criminal threat in El Salvador is unpredictable, gang-centric, and characterized by violence directed against both known associates and targets of opportunity.

The leading cause of non-natural death (among U.S. citizens) is homicide.

The effect and threat of violent crime in San Salvador, including the neighborhoods in which many Americans live and work, leads to isolation and the curtailment of recreational opportunities. Based on current statistics, violent crime remains significantly higher than U.S. and international rates.

El Salvador has the second highest per capita murder rate in the world: 69 per 100,000 in 2012 (UNODC statistics) (by comparison the murder rate in Massachusetts, with a similar geographical area and population, was 2.6 per 100,000).

El Salvador has hundreds of known gang cliques, totaling more than 20,000 members. Violent, well-armed, U.S.-style street gang growth continues, with Los Angeles’ 18th Street and MS-13 (“Mara Salvatrucha”) gangs being the largest. Gangs concentrate on narcotics and arms trafficking, murder for hire, carjacking, extortion, and violent street crime

Guatemala 2014 Crime and Safety Report

Guatemala (population 3.3 million) has one of the highest violent crime rates in Central America.

The violent crime rate is considered “Critical” by the U.S. Department of State. In 2013, Guatemala reported an average of 101 murders per week.

The number of violent crimes reported by U.S. citizens and other foreigners has remained high, and incidents have included, but are not limited to, assault, theft, armed robbery, carjacking, rape, kidnapping, and murder, even in areas of Guatemala City widely considered as safe, such as Zones 10, 14, and 15.

Well-armed criminals know there is little chance they will be caught or punished, further driving criminal impunity.

Kidnapping gangs, often connected to narcotraffickers, are a concern in both Guatemala City and rural Guatemala. Gang members are often well armed with sophisticated weaponry, and they sometimes use massive amounts of force to extort, kidnap, and kill.

[S]exual assault rates were 70 percent higher in 2013 than in 2009. In most known cases, women traveling/driving alone were specifically targeted.

Honduras 2014 Crime and Safety Report

Since 2010, Honduras (population est. 8 million) has had the highest murder rate in the world.

The National Violence Observatory, an academic research institution based out of Honduras’ National Public University, reports that the murder rate was 79 murders per 100,000 people for 2013 (for comparison, Massachusetts at 2.6 murders per 100,000), down from 85.5 murders per 100,000 people in 2012 and 86.5 in 2011. The Honduran National Observatory against Violence reported an average of 19 murders per day in 2013.

Honduras has hundreds of known street gangs, totaling more than 7,000 members. Violent, well-armed, U.S.-style street gang growth continues; 18th Street Gang and MS-13 (“Mara Salvatrucha”) are active. Gangs concentrate on narcotics and arms trafficking, murder-for-hire, carjacking, extortion, and violent street crime. Gangs and other criminal elements roam freely, targeting affluent areas for burglaries. Gang members are quick to engage in violence if resisted. Many of the gangs comprise unemployed youth who are street trained and do not hesitate to use deadly force when perpetrating crimes.

Travelers are warned to avoid all public transportation, as it has become too dangerous for city and country commuting. There have been numerous reports of robberies involving inter-city and international buses. Passengers on public buses are frequently robbed en-route, at roadblocks, and at bus stops. Would-be muggers and gang members are known to keep to a daily schedule, riding city buses from one stop to the next, mugging and committing criminal acts with impunity
